    NF7-S reads PC2700 like DDR266?

    My Abit NF7S reads my Kingston PC2700 ram as DDR266. How can I get it to register at DDR333 speed like it should be?

    do you mean that the when the board reads the SPD speed and timings it sets it to 266mhz?

    If that is so... the only way to change that is send it back to kingston and have them reprogram.

    Was it recognized differently on another board?

    Is your CPU a 333FSB defualt processor or 266?

    Basically, If your CPU is 266FSB, the motherboard has no choice but to display your RAM as 266 also.

    Your RAM is most likely not the culprit, but the CPU FSB being slower than the RAM clock.

    It's easy to fix that in the bios, though, and make your CPU clock do 333 without really overclocking the sytem too much. It can be done relatively safely with your motherboard.

    ...Does anybody else feel like Congress simply bailed themselves out? Isn't that what they really mean by a bailout?

    Thanks, I went into the BIOS and changed the timing from 133 to 166mhz and the multiplier to 12.5 and am now reading 333Mhz and increased overall Mhz from 2.0 to 2.08.

    I appreciate the help. Thanks again.
